Snow Craft in the Rain

Yesterday I walked up in to SCNL with Matt and George to find some snow.  Although the corrie has been devastated in terms of climbing, there is still a good amount of snow for skills etc.  We spent a few hours in the wind and rain digging bucket seats, buried axes and bollards.  Once soaked, we came back down to cover some rope work and rigging of belays.  This proved to be a very useful refresher for the guys.

As the weather is very poor for the next couple of days, it is likely that the Ben will be the only place to hold out.
